In 1999, Health and Wisdom provided the Magnesium Oil in the original clinical trials performed by Dr. C Norman Shealy MD to see if transdermal application was effective. By 2007 many companies were selling the product at an elevated price which prompted the opening of Health and Wisdom. The founder's goal was, and continues to be, to provide Magnesium Oil and related products at prices everyone can afford while creating a reputation for courteous service and continued customer support. In 2013, recognizing our dedication to standards of excellence, the Nemenhah Indigenous Traditional Organization officially recognized the company as a Certified Supplier of Magnesium products suitable for use in Healing Ceremony, an honor which we think typifies our commitment and dedication to quality and service. Our 32,000 square foot warehouse is located in Arcola, MO, USA.

On the Personal Side
Joan and her husband, Bob, are avid re-cyclers and animal rescuers. Over the years they have rescued over 100 animals including dogs, pigs, goats, cats, possums, deer, squirrels, and birds. There are two feedings a day for white tail deer, wild turkeys, squirrels, raccoons, and anything else that comes along. Joan has one criteria, the animals that need a good home must come to her as she will not chase any animal thinking it needs to be saved. Of course any doubt as to whether an animal is in need of rescue is quickly resolved when they jump in the truck with no coaxing!
There is real joy in helping all God's creatures (human and otherwise) when there is a need. These animals are family!
